On to Pandai Sikek, the village of clever craftsmen, darkness already falling. Famous for its songket weaving, songket being gold and silver threads woven into patterns on a base of silk or cotton. One foot loom stands in a room, just for demo, the lady jumps on and gets to it when tourists arrive. Intricate process, thread by thread. Wondering how they know the lay for each thread, the pattern is many days in the making and only a printed A4 page of it sits at her side. Apparently, there are about 20 standard patterns which they are well-versed in. Best quality costs Rp1mil for a 3m piece (S$180)
